Love Overflowing

Gymnastics

on December 29, 2010

I am going to kill two birds with one stone here. Combining events in one post.

Emily just finished up a session of gymnastics through the parks department. She LOVED it. She looked forward to every Thursday night. She thought gymnastics was fun but also because she happened to know one of the little girls in the class. All week all I heard about was gymnastics, Miss Emma and Amelia. She would have gone every night if it was offered.

Her last class ended up being on the 23rd due to a class cancellation. That night the parent got to come in and see what the kids learned. It was pretty cute to see Emily showing off her moves. She perfected the balance beam and forward rolls. She was able  to do some flips and jump on the trampoline. She actually was pretty good at the hula hoop as well.

While I am on the topic of gymnastics, I am going to talk about an awesome playdate that we attended this past week. Our playgroup had a mommy and me class at one of our local gymnastics joints. Since Emily was still high on gymnastics, I thought we would take advantage of the fun. She was in heaven! She got to do the balance beam,  bars, ball pit, trampoline and tons of other things. She was even able to do the balance beam on her own. I was pretty impressed with that considering that it was higher than my waist!

I think we are going to look into enrolling Emily into a gymnastics class. The one through the parks department was nice but it was only a 6 week session and there is only so much they can do in the basement of the hall. I think Emily would really benefit from this. Now we just have to find the perfect place to take her. One that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg!
